Armenian String Cheeses

Armenians value much a wide variety of dairy products.

Armenians have produced cheese for thousands of years.

The home cheese making traditions were passed on from generation to generation.

Armenian string cheese is a pasta filata similar to mozzarella: the fresh, soft curd is pulled to create long filaments.

To prepare KARLACTI string cheeses, the curd is seasoned with mahleb, a Middle Eastern spice made from ground sour cherry pits. The curd is hand pulled into a long loop, twisted and stretched numerous times to create the stringy texture. The loop is then twisted tightly and knotted to form a compact shape called a braid.

KARLACTI handmade all natural Mediterranean braided string cheeses have a mild taste and a pure white color.

A great snack and perfect to melt, our Armenian cheeses are also used as a table cheese and for cooking.
KARLACTI Armenian cheeses come in a variety of flavors to suit everyone.
